Re: Pandora's box?

"How do vegans / principle-based veggies feel about clothing made from wool, or stuff like hand-cream which contains lanolin?"

Given they won't touch nonhuman milk or eggs, both of which issue naturally and non-fatally from animals, they probably avoid them anyway and stick to all plant-based products. I think the trickiest part for them is maintaining B12 supplies since this is best done by eating ruminants (not an option here) and therefore have to rely on bacterial fermentation processes (the only other way to get it).
